Now I am by no means claiming any of these photos are good, but the first two were shot in Tv mode, or where I am controlling the shutter speed and the camera is controlling the aperture. It took a lot of photoshop editing to take down the highlights and open up the shadows. Part of my problem is that Ry is really close to the light, and the white window seat reflects a ton on to her face. My bad. But the fact that she is pointing makes it super cute no matter what right?
I'm a horrible photoshop editor. Horrible. My pictures never come out looking the same because I don't pay attention to what I'm doing, just trying to make each picture look 'better'. So it would be way better for me to get shots that turn out ok straight out of the camera.
I'm happy to report that the following pictures came pretty much straight out of the camera. I did a little editing on the ones of me, because lets face it, I don't look so great in the morning. I was trying to hide some of the mascara smeared on my face. It didn't work :o).
Chris wasn't paying attention. Lame.
Ok on the photos with her and Chris, I did edit the levels, whereas the photos of Ryann and I, I only used the spot healing tool to clean up some of my mascara mess. That was the only editing I did. Which photos look better/more natural to you?
why oh why did I decide to take pictures in the morning?
morning is not a good look on me...
Thanks to the fact that my house is filled with everything green, my photos all have a slightly green cast that I have a tough time getting rid of. Anyone out there have any suggestions?
Seriously, why was I absolutely too scared to shoot in manual? Even try it? I've had this camera for 2.5 years. I'm a dork.
